The Angelus & Regina Coeli

Morning and Evening Prayer are the hinges on which are hung the daily work – or Divine Office – of the Church – Prayer. The beginning of Morning Prayer and the end of Evening Prayer at St Mary’s is marked each day for most of the year by the Angelus (also known as the Angelus Domini or Memorial of the Incarnation) said with the tolling of the church bell in a pattern of 3-3-3-9. The Angelus is also rung by tradition at Noon, and this practice is upheld at St Mary’s when possible.

Angelus Domini

To be rung and/or said/sung at morning, noon and evening; three rings during each ‘Hail Mary’ and nine rings during the prayer. Press play below to hear a recording led by¬†Fr. Harri’s Angels.
